53W53 (MoMA Tower)

Designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, this new iconic residential development is located adjacent to the existing Museum of Modern Art. The design features a faceted exterior that tapers to a set of three distinct asymmetrical crystalline peaks at the apex of the tower – each peak varying in height and shape. The 750,000 sf building will rise 1,050 feet from the sidewalk. The typical residential floor-to-floor height will be twelve feet.

Housing high-end residential condominiums as well as the MoMA expansion, the tower will create a dramatic addition to the Manhattan skyline.
